Cloned drive boots to c: prompt
I bought a samsung SSD 830 for my laptop (Alienware m14x).
The SSD came with a usb cable and Norton Ghost. So following the included manual to copy a disk I copied the system partition with Ghost, and then the "C" partition.
Problem is that when I install the SSD after the copy it boots to the c: prompt and not into Windows 7. What is strange is that after copying, before booting the new drive no drive letter is assigned to the system partition, but after booting the SSD, then replacing the SSD with the old drive, a drive letter is assigned to the system partition.
I'm not familiar with system partitions so not sure where to troubleshoot.
I cloned the drive twice to ensure I selected the correct options in Ghost based on the manual provided. The manual is very specific and detailed so I'm sure I followed the steps accurately. So all I can think is Dell created their partition differently.
